This is how long it takes their servers to deliver on a simple search for “new york”. I have discussed at various points throughout the last week that there are some steps that Technorati could take to try and resolve their Web performance issues.
Technorati Search Content is still, for the most part, relevant for my needs. But I use Google most of the time, and just changed my Pinger to hit Ping-O-Matic to get into more search engines. Also a lot of good talk about IceRocket’s Blog Search tool.
If the Technorati team moves toward selling their services to businesses and corporations (a blog monitoring service), they are definitely putting the cart before the horse. Abandoning your core business to try and appeal to a “broader market” very rarely works.
And why are we having this discussion at all?
Because, dammit, we actually thought Technorati was different.
